Binnacle according to Wiki:

A binnacle is a waist-high case or stand on the deck of a ship, generally mounted in front of the helmsman, in which navigational instruments are placed for easy and quick reference as well as to protect the delicate instruments. Its traditional purpose was to hold the ship's magnetic compass, mounted in gimbals to keep it level while the ship pitched and rolled. A binnacle may be subdivided into sections and its contents typically include one or more compasses and an oil lamp or other light source. Other devices such as a sand timer for estimating speed may have been stored in the binnacle as well.


And from another dictionary:

Noun

binnacle ‎(plural binnacles)
  • The wooden housing for a ship's compass, with its corrector magnets and illuminating arrangements; the log and other equipment for measuring the ship's speed is also stowed there.
  • The instrument cluster on a car or motorcycle

For some time, the term Binnacle has often been used to describe the instrument cluster in cars

I think I cracked the mystery. After visiting my dealer's lot this morning, it appears that all GLC's with the top stitched dashes have the binnacles. That is included with the interior package only I believe.

Thanks rbrylaw. You also! It was a bit of a crap-shoot buying sight unseen but I needed a mid/small SUV and I am very pleased with the choice and how it all came out.

P22 build code exclusive interior gives you the chrome surround/binacles.

Is there an added cost for the Exclusive Interior?

If you mean the exclusive Nappa leather, yes. It is $1450 extra and requires the interior package. The interior package used to be listed at $2500. Then they removed the top-stitched trim($650) and reduced the price to $1850. But, if you order the interior package you must also order the top-stitched trim. Same difference. On the other hand, if you order the top-stitched trim, you must order the interior package. Back to $2500. So, to get exclusive Nappa leather, it will cost a total of $3950.

I do not know if their is a cost but what I have found is every car with the chrome binacles has that code irregardless of whether they had the interior package/leather.

Thanks, but that wasn't what I was trying to learn. I know the leather and interior package is additional cost. What we've been trying to figure out is what prompts some cars to get the dual binnacles or not and if there's a cost for them.

I would think on someone's build sheet it would show what, if any cost the dual binnacles would be if they have the "Exclusive Interior" option.

It's still a mystery to me why some GLC's have them and some don't.

I have exclusive package p22 on my build sheet. No charge listed. If you go to other Mercedes sites for example Australia there is Build pdf that has an exclusive package that includes the p22 code for the binacles. It is used in cars with certain leather interiors.

And the mystery continues. If your build did not include P22 Exclusive Interior, yet you have the Binnacles, what does prompt some to get Binnacles and others to not get Binnacles?

The dash stitching on the dashboard that's also included in the Sport Package? I got the Sport Package but it did not include P22. Will be picking my car up tomorrow so I can report on what's included!

It will be interesting to see what your car has. I'm not sure why this has to be so hard to figure out? Mercedes would be doing customers a favor if there was something on the Build Configuration tool that made this simple to know.

Adding to the confusion, yesterday I found GLC300's with the flat-bottom steering wheel, matching "standard" 18" wheels (rbrylaw), and the same 20" wheels available in Europe. I officially give up trying to figure things out.

-Black accented 20" wheels (MB configurator)
-Grey/silver 20" wheels
-Silver 18" "standard" wheels
-Flat-bottom steering wheel (designo package too)

I was under the impression that the flat-bottom steering wheel and grey 20" wheels were unavailable in the US market.

Maybe these puppies are just so new that on the manufacturing line in Bremen, they're just improvising as they go down the line.
